Community First Responders are volunteers who, when on call, may be asked by the Ambulance Service to attend potentially life-threatening medical emergencies (for example heart attack, stroke, or breathing difficulties) to provide basic life support until the arrival of a Rapid Response Vehicle or Ambulance. They use their own cars and carry a defibrillator, oxygen and other basic items
